  I have ejabberd working if using a client like gaim, adium, etc..  
but I need to get it working with JWChat. I have tried the different  
tutorials but haven't had much luck. First, I have a typical  
installation of Apache2 running on my chat server. I also have jwchat  
installed in my /srv/www/htdocs directory and I can access the welcome  
screen of jwchat.

I am using ejabberd 2.0 and I can't get the http-bind working and I am  
unable to get anything working through port 5280. I tried the  
following but it didn't have any affect:

  LoadModule proxy_module /usr/lib/apache2/mod_proxy.so
  LoadModule proxy_http_module /usr/lib/apache2/mod_proxy_http.so
  LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache2/mod_rewrite.so

  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteRule /http-bind/ http://mychat.example.com:5280/http-bind/
  ProxyPass /http-bind/ http://mychat.example.com:5280/http-bind/

I have this in my ejabberd.cfg file:
  {5280, ejabberd_http, [
                          {request_handlers, [
                           {["web"], mod_http_fileserver}

  {mod_http_bind,  []},
   {mod_http_fileserver, [
                          {docroot, "/srv/www/htdocs"},
                          {accesslog, "/var/log/ejabberd/webaccess.log"}
